The Cannes Lions 2015 award-winning series includes films narrated by nature in the voices of the biggest names in Hollywood including Penélope Cruz, Harrison Ford, Edward Norton, Robert Redford, Julia Roberts, Ian Somerhalder, Kevin Spacey and Lupita Nyong’o. The films have been viewed more than 40 million times across 33 countries, garnering more than 2 billion total impressions. In Hong Kong, the films were subtitled or voiced by Cantonese-speaking celebrities — bringing the message directly to Hong Kong with English versions of the films tailored to include Chinese subtitles. #HKIsListening to the free-flowing voice of Zhou Xun in her personification of Water as well as the delicate tones of Tang Wei’s Flower.
